Model Academy Hurling Squads : National Blitzes 2018

This weekend sees the finale of our academy season for hurling. Each squad will have two panels represented at U14, U15 & U16 level. Academies have become an integral part of the pathway to elite performance for GAA players. Academies have nurtured and developed young talent throughout the recent past. These academies have changed from being driven mainly by competition to their current existence of being driven by player development. It is a credit to all involved in developing this player centered approach to the development of the stars of the future.

Wexford Coaching & Games Development wish all the players, management the very best over the course of the weekend and thank everyone involved for their time and effort in the 2018 season.
